Next day Anandi goes to meet Shiv in his office. She tells him 'Main janthi hoon aap ne kiya yeh sab'. Shiv shocked and says 'Ab meine kya kiya ?' She replies 'Woh gadi... '
He stammers 'Mein nahi.. Woh Mom ki idea tha..' Anandi is teasing him 'Accha.. Mom ki idea tha...' Shiv tries to explain but she interrupts' Aapko tho jhoot bholna bilkul bhi nahi aata. Dekho kaise nazre chura rahe hai. Maine socha aap mujhse pyar karte...' She suddenly stops realizing what she had just said 'mera matlab.. meri liye yeh sab kiya toh mein aapko tohfa de do.. lekin ab lagta hai Mom ko hi tofta dena chahiye..' and gets up
to leave. Shiv is shocked and surprised to hear Anandi's words and stops her saying 'Anandi ruko, kaisa tohfa?' Anandi turns back still teasing him 'aap kyun pooch rahe hai ? aap ne toh nahi kiya..' Shiv who is now standing sighs looking at the floor and says 'Haan mera hi idea tha.. mujhe laga tumhe..' Anandi interupts looking straight into his eyes saying 'Aap itni saafai kyun de rahe hai? Mujhe accha laga aap ne ye socha aur jo bhi kiya.' Shiv is happy. She says 'Acha mein chalti hoon' and turns to leave and suddenly Shiv holds her hand and asks 'tohfa ka kya huva?' Anandi turns back shocked seeing that he had held her hand.
But, she still is smiling and resists says 'mera hath chodiye... aur kaisa tohfa ?' She is smiling slyly now and says 'Meine toh yoohi kaha tha.' But, Shiv is no mood to listen and flirtingly says 'accha yoohi.. Ab keh diya hai toh kuch dena padega !' Anandi is shocked and is still is trying to free her hand 'mujhe jane dijiye..' Shiv grinning 'Nahi pehle batao kya dena hai mujhe aur phir main tumhe chodta hoon.' Anandi trying to free herself but cannot as he proves to be too strong for her. Finally she says 'haath chodenge tabhi toh de paoungi'. Shiv immidiately releases her hand but is still smirking and she gives him the lunch box that she had got him and walks out of his office smiling. He opens the lunch box and he sees that she had kept a red rose for him with a thank you note in it in the top container. Shiv is pleasantly surprised but loved the fact that Anandi had started to give him the attention that he had been longing from her from such a long time. He was able to see that Anandi's behavior towards him had changed quite a bit since their engagement and that's how he was able to muster the courage to hold her hand !
Back home in the afternoon, she remembers how Shiv had held her hand earlier and how that feeling had made her heart skip a beat. He had never made any advances towards her like this ever before she thought. But, she didn't mind him flirting with her. She is smiling and takes her phone and looks at the name 'Collector sahab' in the address book. She is blushing seeing the name and unknowningly starts editing the name and changes to 'Shiv' !
She had just met him few hours back but she already wanted to talk to him, meet him and be around him. She felt kind of restless. She looked at her phone hoping he would call. She was wondering if he ever opened the top box and saw what she had left for him, if he liked it, if he had lunch and generally chat. Suddenly her face went pale and realized how he must have felt when she had rejected him. All those times when he wanted to be around her but could not because she didn't allow him to 'Unko mein pasand thi. Unko bhi kya aisi hi becheni mehsoos hoti hogi aur mein...' and feels bad for her past behavior.
She ses that Shiv is driving his jeep somewhere. She is not sure of the place. Suddenly from nowhere some people on bikes start following him. Shiv sees this and accelerates the jeep. The goons start attacking him and his jeep hits a tree and he falls out of the jeep. Shiv does not run but starts fighting with his attackers. Suddenly one of the goons takes a gun and shoots couple of shots at Shiv. With this Shiv falls on the ground. Anandi lets out a loud scream when she hears the gun shots.
Suddenly Anandi gets up sweating and feels as though her breath had stopped for a second. She felt suffocated. She then realizes it was a bad dream. She gets very anxious and is very tensed and is hyperventilating. She sees the clock and it is only 3:00 pm. She remembered that she had fallen sleep after editing her address book. She looks for her phone and starts hurriedly trying to call Shiv. Even though she knows it was a dream she is still very worried. Her hands are trembling. Shiv does not answer. She calls another 5 times and it is the same response. She then calls BS and his phone is also not reachable. She is extremely worried now. She wants to go and meet him. She remembers he was talking on the phone about the highway project with somebody. She calls the driver and on the way to the project site she is unable to control her tears and is profusely crying.
Shiv is at the site in a meeting. She reaches the site and sees Shiv and without thinking starts running towards him with tears in her eyes. Shiv sees Anandi running towards him and is shocked and worried. Anandi does not stop herself and runs into his arms and hugs him. Shiv along with the others present there are startled. Shiv is surprised and asks 'Anandi kya huva.. Tum aise ?' Anandi does not respond but is just crying and letting her emotions flow and hugs him more tighter. Shiv gives her time and asks others to give them some privacy. After few minutes Anandi realizes where and what she had done. She slowly releases herself from the embrace and looks at him and the surroundings. She looks down. Shiv again asks 'Kya baat hai. SAb teek toh hai?' She asks him' Aap teek hai na?' again tears flowing. He puts a hand on her shoulder 'Haan mein teek hoon. Lekin baat kya hai ? tum itni parishaan kyun ho ?'
She does not answer him but asks him 'Aap ne phone kyun nahi utaya ? Mein ne kitni koshish ki. Mein itni parishaan hogayi thi'. Shiv says 'Woh meine gadi mein chod di thi meeting ki...' Anandi interrupts shouting 'Gadi mein chodne ke liye hota hai, phone ?' Shiv does not know what to say. He just looks at her and says 'Calm down Anandi. Baat kya hai yeh toh batao mujhe'. She is still angry and upset and on further coaxing tells him about her dream and continues 'main bohat darr gayi thi, jaise meri saase rukh si gayi ho..mujhe dar laga ki agar aapko kuch ho jata toh aur mein aapko kahi ko na jao.' A smile forms on Shiv's lips, She sees him smiling and is not amused one bit 'yahan mein aapke liye itni pareshaan ho rahi hoon aur aap hai ke smile kar rahe hai ?' Shiv does not say anything but is still smiling. She realizes why Shiv was grinning bcos of what she had confessed. Shiv is overjoyed hearing her words and now he is sure that she has started to feel for him. His joy knew no bounds.
She starts to turn away not wanting to meet his eyes. Shiv stops her by holding her hand and this time pulls her closer to him and says 'Tumhari yahi pravah mujhe sabse acchi lagti hai Anandi.' He takes both her hands closer to his lips and kisses them and says 'I LOVE YOU !' Anandi looks at him and has turned pink and does not know what to say and just hugs him. Shiv is so happy that he lifts and twirls her around once !
As usual will be waiting for your feedback !
